Body of diver found in Punaluu identified

A 41-year-old man who died after he went night diving in Punaluu has been identified as Dusty William of Honolulu.

The cause of William’s death is still pending, according to the Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office.

William went diving with his friends about 100 yards off of Punaluu Beach Park Tuesday night when he failed to return shore.

Honolulu firefighters responded at about 10:10 p.m. and conducted a ground and aerial search along the shoreline. The search was suspended at about 12:30 a.m. Firefighters had planned to resume their search at dawn Wednesday, but at about 3 a.m. a bystander reported observing a body identified as William near the mouth of Punaluu River.
